This product was a gamble for me--I bought it not knowing anything about the brand or the item. I am happy to report that it is a great addition to my winter routine. To me, the best feature is the easy to use push up style. I don't want to get my hands greasy or sticky when I apply a balm, so the fact that I can push this up and put it on my elbows or lips or cuticles is so great. I also really like the texture (not greasy, more waxy), the clean ingredients and the mild scent. I think this will be a great gift to friends and family who also suffer from dry, cracking, sensitive skin.
